Question about 1994 BMW 7 Series
I have an 1994 E38 740IL BMW 7 Series Sedan with a flat battery, is there a way of opening this type of car to charge the battery or how can I open or charge battery from outside?
Yes many people have run into this problem. It is a somewhat complicated procedure. The trunk can be unlocked even when the battery is dead, so insert the key and turn it counter-clockwise and push. Once you have the trunk open locate the trunk light. (there are two of them I believe). Now you need a battery charger NO MORE than 10 AMPS. Connect the charger through the light socket (RED/WHITE is positive) charge for 10 MIN. no more than that. after you have done that (and be very careful about no more than 10 amps because there is a fuse and you do not want to blow it) Try unlocking the door with the key. If this does not work you can try the emergency unlock procedure. Hold the drivers side door handle open while turning the key to unlock the door, if the drivers side does not work, move to the passenger side and try that one. It will be hard to turn the key because you are manually unlocking the doors, keep pushing just don't break your key. Let me know if this helps you.
